5.0 out of 5 stars Fun concert--worth checking out! June 6, 2011
Format:DVD
This is a completely enjoyable through Neil's songbook by a bunch of extremely talented artists. Both Dave Matthews and Ben Harper show what great musicians they are by largely solo acoustic performances, Keith Urban shows off his lead guitar chops (in tandem with no less a legend than John Fogerty of CCR), and CSN show that they can still harmonize beautifully. Performances by Norah Jones, Lady Antebellum, and Jason Mraz/Shawn Colvin show of the often ignored sweeter side of Neil. And Wilco's on-stage replication of the very complex studio creation Broken Arrow is just amazing.

Does Neil do all these songs better? Of course! Any major talent, from Dylan and the Beatles on down always does their own material best. But these are still very enjoyable versions that give one a different take on Neil's artistry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your favorite artists do Neil justice June 30, 2011
By Neva
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I started watching this concert on TV and ordered it on Amazon before it was even over. So many of my favorite artist singing Neil Young songs...what could be better? The awesome and unusual pairing of Keith Urban and John Fogerty was amazing with a little help from Booker T. Jones. One of my very very favs, Dave Matthews doing "The Needle and the Damage Done" was perfect. Also, Lady Antebellum, Norah Jones, Josh Groban, (yes folks, Josh doing Neil Young),Ben Harper, Jackson Browne, Elvis Costello, James Taylor, John Mellencamp, CSN, Elton & Leon...to say this is an all star line up is an understatement. The keyboard player in the background,who you can hardly see, but is playing on most of the songs, is Rami Jaffee from The Wallflowers(Jakob Dylans band)and Foo Fighters. He is great and highly underrated as a keyboard player. If you love Neil and any of these artists, this is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Tributes June 3, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I'm sorry but, the other reviews for this are absurd. This is a TRIBUTE to one of the greatest songwriters of our times and all of the performers do excellent. Regardless of whether or not you like each individual cover, it's the passion that these multiple musicians have for Mr. Young. I was very touched when Dave Matthews sang "The Needle and the Damage Done" and, at the end, gave Neil Young a big thumbs up. You could really see how much he cared. In my opinion, all of the performances were spot on. If I could give this 6 stars, I would.

5.0 out of 5 stars To The People Who Gave This Less Than 4 Stars: August 24, 2012
Format:DVD
Let me start by saying that there are only 2 reasons that I would ever give this 4 stars, instead of 5. 1)it was too short and 2)it's not available on CD. That being said, I just can't give it less than 5. I'm an old(er) broad who grew up listening to Neil Young's songs (a multitude of covers included) and I'm still listening to them. I've seen him (as well as several of the tribute artists) in concert, many times. If you want to rate this video on sound quality, etc. I can't argue with you because frankly, I'm no audiophile, but I am a lover of music and the artists who offered up their tributes to this amazing man, legend, icon, prolific songwriter, all did so beautifully and with heart. Yes, there were artists who weren't jumping all over the stage as they performed, but that has nothing to do with being bored or needing more rehearsal. (Well, OK... Crow and Case should have spent a bit more time in rehearsal) Artists all have their own methodolgy when it comes to performing and slow and steady is just one of those methods. The true gems for me are Dave Matthew's rendition of "Needle And The Damage Done", James Taylor's performance of "Heart of Gold", Elvis Costello's "Losing End" and the absolutely outstanding version of "Broken Arrow" by Wilco. Norah Jones, CSN, Jackson Browne and Mellencamp/Burnette knocked it out of the park too. If you're over 40 and love the music that you grew up listening to as much as I do, this is a must buy. If you're under 40 and truly appreciate the iconic talent of Neil Young, then do the same. You won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is now my new demo disk! June 16, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I really enjoy this Blu-ray of Neil Young hits, but just like any album there are hits and misses... but there are way more hits on this disk. The acoustic solo's by Dave Matthews, Ben Harper and Stephen Stills sound incredible! I love the Nora Jones cover, and Down by the River sung by John Mellencamp is simply outstanding, very well recorded.

4.0 out of 5 stars Over forty years of contributions June 11, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Neil Young's songs never sounded better than through the artists who recorded his material as a tribute. Some that stand out were Dave Matthews uncanny cover of "The Needle and the Damage Done", Nora Jones in a wonderful duet of "Tell Me Why" and of course Crosby, Stills and Nash doing "Human Highway". This is a "must have" for Neil Young fans.
